Back To School Letter 2020-2021
Spring City Elementary School Family,
Welcome back to one of the most challenging years in education. Covid-19 has brought about many changes and uncertainties in the schedules and logistics here at Spring City Elementary School. This letter addresses the strategies that will be put into place to slow the spread of the virus. The goal is to provide a safe environment for both students and faculty/staff.
Intense cleaning of the building will take place during the day and evening.
Faculty/staff will have their temperature checked every morning.
Students will have their temperature checked during bus duty each morning.
Grades 3-5 students will not rotate classrooms. Teachers will rotate into/out of the classrooms. Only small groups will leave the room if required for RTI/Sped services.
Cafeteria tables/seats have been spaced out and students will have an assigned seat.
Students will play in designated areas during recess which will limit student contact.
Daily lessons on social distancing, hand washing, and proper procedures for coughing/sneezing.
Students will always walk the hallway on the right side. This will limit any interaction with other classes in the hall.
NO VISITORS will be allowed in the building. Parents will be met at the front door should a student need to be checked in/out. We will not allow visitors for lunch. If you need to meet with teachers/administrators, an appointment will be required.
Students will only be allowed to ride their assigned bus. Students will not be allowed to ride a bus home with friends due to limited/assigned seating on buses.
Staggered dismissal times for students. More information will be shared in an additional letter/SchoolCast.
Suggestions for Home
Check your child's temperature before sending to school. If they have a fever, KEEP THEM HOME. Your child does not need to return to school until they have been fever free for 24 hours WITHOUT medication.
Talk with your child about the importance of hand washing, coughing/sneezing into their elbows and keep a social distance from other students.
Talk with your child about keeping their hands and feet to themselves.
Please make sure your child has their own school supplies. The grade level lists are on the Home page of our school website at springcity.tn.rce.schoolinsites.comunder the Supply List label.
Please make sure to purchase your child a no spill water bottle. The water fountains will be closed.
If your child will be purchasing snacks in the cafeteria, we STRONGLY encourage you to use the prepay online system,www.schoolcafe.com. You will need your child's PowerSchool number. We will send a letter with that information soon.
